If you’re new to vaping or have been vaping for a while now, you may notice the recent popularity of pod vapes. Vapes are available in two different styles and applications: mods and pods. Not only do they look different, with pod vapes being smaller and more convenient, there are other notable differences between mods and pod vapes that you should consider when deciding which to purchase.
Here are the 3 main differences between Mods and Pod vapes:
Vape mods are designed for sub-ohm vaping used with an e-liquid and a higher vegetable glycerin content. The higher vegetable glycerin content is what produces thicker and fuller vape clouds than that of pod vapes. Many vapers like these because of the fuller clouds that provide an enjoyable visual experience. Vapers can choose liquids that have different nicotine amounts or no nicotine at all.
On the other hand, pods are becoming very popular. The best pod mods contain nicotine salt e-liquid which has a higher concentration of nicotine than freebase e-liquids used with vape mods and is available in different nicotine strengths. They use pods that are filled with e-liquid that are small and easier to transport in pockets and purses.
It is important to note that using nicotine salts in a traditional tank can result in damage, since freebase liquids are traditionally used in standard tanks that are compatible with most mods.
Because of their higher nicotine salt content, pods are more ideal for smokers looking to quit cigarettes. The best vape pod mods are also lighter weight than a vape mod counterpart offering a similar experience to smoking a cigarette. Many people have been successful with pods when switching from cigarettes to vaping because they offer the ability to choose nicotine content with the flavors they enjoy.
Vape mods are slightly larger and offer vapers the ability to play with different settings and easily customize their vape experience. Vapers who don’t require a certain nicotine content prefer these as they can customize their device to create the perfect density for the clouds they want. Past smokers can also use vape mods as a way to help them quit smoking, but these do not offer the same user-friendly applications like ideal size and weight for people used to cigarettes.
Refillable pod mods are usually more cost-effective. While there are closed pod mods that are not refillable and can be inexpensive depending on your daily use, refillable pod mods are the cheapest way to vape because you have the ability to refill your own pods with a high concentration of nicotine salts in the flavors that you love. Because you should only need a bottle or two of your favorite e-liquid monthly, you’ll be spending less money on buying already filled pods and even less money than mod vapes.
Vape mods, on the other hand, require much more work along with the refilling of the tanks, like changing the coil at least twice a month, which can be pricey.
